Hi there! As it stands I want to do medicine but that may change in the future. Here are my definite A-level options:
Critical thinking is also compulsory at my school to AS level, however, I have been offered to drop critical thinking and replace it with Further Maths.

If you're set on medicine, just keep in mind that some unis may not accept maths and FM as two separate A levels, so only do it if you really like maths!

Agree with the person above, FM is useful for subjects like Maths and Economics, but not essential for FM. If you were to take it at AS, I would definitely drop it at A2. I didn't really do Critical Thinking apart from attending the few lessons my sixth form offered (wasn't seen as essential) so I don't really know how useful it is. It's worth discussing with a teacher or a past student that has been accepted into medicine.
Most of the medics in my year took Maths, Biology, Chemistry and then something random like Geography/English Lit/History which they dropped later after AS. No one took a Critical Thinking A level.

Thanks for the replies! I do really enjoy Maths and if I did have a change of heart it would probably be for something maths related - just figured if I had the AS level FM there it would perhaps open up some more options at Uni.
I've also chosen subject that interest me and that I don't mind working hard for because I enjoy it..
Also, what are your guys opinions on starting a little bit of A-Level work over the summer? I'm not very busy and it might give me a little headstart in September and help to minimise the workload of 5 AS subjects :P
